Guitarist Darin Mahoney and flutist Sherry Finzer created Transformation with the intention to help others, whether it be a stressful event, and illness, or just the need for relaxation. The songs are quite emotional, as Darin shares his story of surviving Stage 4 cancer through his music.
Alger St and Joplin recreate memories from Darin's childhood, The Door is about opportunities that are presented to us throughout our life, and how we choose the doors that make up our lives. Confused conjures up feelings about Darin's experience after waking up from his coma after his chemotherapy treatments, and Jane's Song was written for violist Jane Hilton, who dealt with and successfully battled breast cancer. Reflection stirs up tender memories for Sherry of her love and devotion to her children. The melancholy melody of White Sky in November was dedicated to Sherry by composer Tom Febonio. Darin's composition of Early Spring is about the renewal and awakening after going through a major Transformation in life.
Alger St., Confused, Early Spring, Joplin, Jane's Song and The Door were written by Darin Mahoney (BMI). Reflection was written by Sherry Finzer (ASCAP), and White Sky in November by Tom Febonio (ASCAP).
Transformation was recorded, mixed and mastered by John Herrera at Clamsville Studios.
